To begin with we'd enjoy educating you about the different terms that sometimes get confusing. “Landscape” and “Hardscape”. Understanding these basic terms will also help you in choosing the right type of Company for the specific type of project you are seeking to create.



                I bet you have called a sole Landscape Company to give you a price for a stone patio or a fireplace, etc.. Well, that patio or fireplace isn’t “landscaping”. Landscape is anything to do with living (animate) things. Some examples would be sod, bushes, flowers,trees, etc. These are landscape items. This would be called "landscaping".


Here is an example of a landscape project-

                Hardscape is a term most people are not familiar with. It’s the “scaping” of your property with non-living (inanimate) things. Some examples would be with the use of masonry materials such as stone, brick, and concrete. If you have a patio in your backyard or a walkway, a fireplace, pool, water feature, etc.. These are all hardscape items.This would be called "hardscaping". 


Here is an example of a hardscape project ( with some minor landscape surrounding it)-

Landscape versus Hardscape 

                So, in short, think of it this way. Landscape is anything living or animate and Hardscape is anything non-living or inanimate. It's important to understand these definitions in order to choose the correct type of Company to handle your project especially when you are seeking masonry and hardscape. Think of it this way - you don’t go to a butcher shop to purchase vegetables. With ARNOLD Masonry and Landscape, we ARE the butcher shop ( with veggies on the side ;) ).
